Salt spray rose hips

Rosa rugosa


Tomato-like rose hips grow low to the ground in a shrublike fashion. Fruits are each about an inch in size. Some are wrinkly. They give way to salt spray roses.


Atlantic coastal area, wildlife refuge.

I think you're definitely correct, Leuba. I saw many non-native salt spray roses nearby (Rosa rugosa), so it's most likely the same plant. Yes, I was fortunate enough to spot many healthy plants.

Mauna, They look like rosehips to me. I usually see them on wild rose bushes when all the leaves have dropped off but your shots show a very healthy plant.
